Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Writing Best Book (nominee)
This is the story of Lizzie Vogel, a 15 year old girl who finds herself working in a ramshackle old people's home in the English suburbs. It is the late 1970s and the place is in chaos - there's a much swisher old people's home nearer the supermarket with better parking which is taking all the best patients; Matron seems to be utterly without qualifications, and Lizzie has no idea what she's doing.

But, the longer Lizzie stays the more she discovers about the patients and the staff - she uncovers a love affair and a plot to kidnap one of the patients, as well as discovering how not to wash false teeth or give an old lady a bath. Very funny, tender and wonderfully gripping, Paradise Lodge is a celebration of chaos, love and old people.
